When I turned 22, I moved to Las Vegas and became a certified designer. The famous Las Vegas Strip became my home away from home. Caesar’s Palace, The Wynn, The Palazzo, and The Cosmopolitan are some of the venues I spent more than my fair share of time in. I then received the opportunity to travel the west coast as an event designer working out of Los Angeles, California. Taking this position was the footing for what now is Remi + Gold. I started designing florals specifically tailored for weddings and as an understudy, I was so intrigued with the modernity of design within the perfect mixtures and balance of textures, colors, and shapes. I was fascinated by the high intensity of the Los Angeles Flower Market and I lived for those 4am mornings. There’s nothing else like it.

But then in 2013, it was time to uproot one more time and as fate would have it I landed deep in the heart of Texas! I found the definition of “home” in Austin and immediately fell in love with the city, culture and its people. The local support of small businesses and crafters, the progressive culture and care is bar none.

My love of fashion, architecture and home interiors all play a significant role in my aesthetic and overall design gravitation. But so much of what I do is inspired by my travels and the study of people. I love infusing cultural inspiration and thoughtful composition to help people feel a certain way. It doesn’t matter much to me how they feel. As long as they feel something. Art is meant to be striking and move people. Floral art to me is no different. I am so lucky that this medium found me and has lead me to a craft I could never fathom my life without.

In the past 2 years we have received opportunities to take REMI + GOLD on the road and overseas! We save a few slots on our calendar every year to travel so if you are eloping or planning a wedding somewhere far, far away don't hesitate to reach out for our availability!

I have had the honor of collaborating + being published in various platforms such as Every Last Detail Blog, BRIDES, Brides of Austin, Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cake, Trendy Bride Magazine, Ruffled, Style Me Pretty, and Brides of Austin.
